Default Circle notification without case

Any chance we can activate the circle notifier without the case?

I'm coming from a samsing galaxy s4 on which ive had dynamic notifications app to emulate the moto x. This works great to show you notifications and the clock when you pull the phone out of your pocket. Of course its an amoled screen so has limited hit on battery but id still like something similar on the G3.

From the circle case vids I can see that the rest of the screen is black but it's not off is it since its LCD so does the circle case use full screen battery?

I might be wrong, not looked into it yet (waiting for my case) but I believe it works via magnets.

It would be possible to mod, but would require some smart person to hack the relevant code

Yes I managed to activate it by placing it on my nexus 5 wireless charger which has a magnet built into it.
